What is the best way to schedule a restart for client computers managed with SCCM 2007 R2? I would like to restart computers at our remote site tonight at 10pm. If there are any other methods other than SCCM that anyone would recommend that would work as well.

Thanks!

You could also create a package that runs the commandline shutdown /r. You can also add more settings to this command to suit your needs.
